Dream Valley DT Challenge #93 Halloween

Apologies, chaps, I had a dicky tummy yesterday and had an early night, so this post is a day late. Sorry!

Our new challenge at Dream Valley is Halloween. The prize this fortnight is a little different than usual:

A Twelve Days of Christmas 12 x 12 pad from Graphic 45; 3 reels of ribbon; and a bag of flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts.

My card for this Challenge is a spooky scene suitable for a lady who likes horror films!

The purple paper is from a Papermania Capsule collection, I think the pattern looks like a sinister stormy sky! The green is from stash, it was a bit dull so I stamped it with Memento Luxe Pear Tart pigment ink, and a background stamp by just Rite called Sweet Vines. It doesn't show in the photo, but there's a subtle sheen (and I'm rather proud of it!)

The moon is a die-cut circle sponged with Squeezed Lemonade, Mustard Seed and Dried Marigold Distress Inks, then I spattered some water on top to give a mottled effect. The bats are from the same stamp set as the trees and house: Happy Haunting by Lawn Fawn. I coloured the house and trees in Promarkers.

The fence is cut with a Whiff of Joy Picket Fence Die The image is an old digi from Tickled Pink Stamps, sadly no longer trading, and she is also coloured with Promarkers. I added her with foam pads so she looks as if she's floating and edged her in stickles to give her a ghostly outline!

I apologise for the faded photo, irl the colours are brighter. I don't like these dark evenings!

Go and see the spookilicious work that the DT has done at Dream Valley

Thanks for looking!
